Any tips? I don't think that I am succeding in this department, I don't think any of the attendings or residents that I have worked with have been particularly impressed with my work so far. Part of the problem is that I am an awful verbal learner, people say things to me and it goes in one ear and out the other. I usually need to hear things many times before I get it; I never learned material well in lectures during 1st 2 yrs, I always had to go home and read it before I understood it. Some of my classmates seem better at the whole schmoozing and joking around with attendings as well. I am currently doing a rotation in pediatrics, and it would be great if I could read up on what my patients had but we don't know what both of my patients on the floor have so I've been trying to do as much reading as I can but I never seem to hit the stuff that I am being asked on. And finally, my resident gets annoyed when I ask him questions which is really annoying because this is my first rotation and I don't know how else I am supposed to figure out how things work in a hospital. At this point, I would be very happy just to get a "B" and move on to a new rotation so that I can start over. Anyone have any advice for how to do well in peds or in rotations in general?
